3.2 Message Formats and Coding

08.083GPPMobile-services Switching Centre - Base Station system (MSC-BSS) Interface Layer 3 SpecificationRelease 1999TS

This sub-clause defines the coding and format of the messages required for the BSSMAP.

For each message there is, in sub-clause 3.2.1, a table listing the signalling elements in their order of appearance in the transmitted message.

There is no general rule for the order of signalling elements: it happens that the same elements appear in various orders depending on the message.

All the BSSMAP messages are listed in the following table:
